Your Thoughts

There are five comments.

  It's sad to see so many negative comments about this building. The style of the building is called international style coined in 1932 by Phillip Johnson. Some times it can be confused with the iron-curtain architectural style. In England they call it Functionalism. The simplicity of the building stems back from the Louis Sullivan inspired days. At first glance the style is not breath taking but once one spends some time studying the style it becomes thought provoking. I personally like the large open forays that these buildings usually have. Chicago has six or more international style buildings in the downtown area as apart of this business planned complex. One of the buildings, which is identical to 303 E. Wacker was used as an office for Bruce Wayne in The Dark Knight.

  This building has no redeeming qualities in comparison to other buildings in the immediate area. The interior of the building zaps the energy out of the people who work there.

  Plain, ordinary, routine and dull = completely average. Its nothing spectacular, but it's not ugly either - it could be a lot worse.

  Miesian minimalisism reduced to dreadfully dull. A routine box that could be anywhere. What a waste of location.

  Pretty plain and ordinary looking. Not a building I would want to stop and take a long look at. Too bad, because it occupies a great location.
